The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama sits in the heart of Cardiff city centre and is surrounded by white Portland-stone 19th century civic buildings on one side and the grounds of the magnificent Cardiff Castle on the other. The college comprises of two buildings combining history and a contemporary style in one location.
Situated at the end of an impressive tree-lined avenue, guests will arrive from within Bute Park with the castle in view. This entrance can be used for traditional wedding cars, horses, carts, walking or even a tandem. The park is located on the river which runs down Cardiff Bay, so it’s even possible to have a water taxi transport the bride and groom.
